Thought for the week

The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. óLuke 19:10
Every day a father craned his neck to look toward the distant road, waiting for his sonís return. And every night he went to bed disappointed. But one day, a speck appeared. A lonesome silhouette stood against the crimson sky. Could that be my son? the father wondered. Then he caught sight of the familiar saunter. Yes, that has to be my son!
And so while the son was ďstill a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed himĒ (Luke 15:20). It is remarkable that the family patriarch did something that was considered undignified in Middle Eastern cultureóhe ran to meet his son. The father was full of unbridled joy at his sonís return.
The son didnít deserve such a reception. When he had asked his father for his share of the inheritance and left home, it was as if he had wished his father dead. But despite all that the son had done to his father, he was still his son (v.24).
This parable reminds me that Iím accepted by God because of His grace, not because of my merits. It assures me that Iíll never sink so deep that Godís grace canít reach me. Our heavenly Father is waiting to run to us with open arms.

Father, Iím so grateful for all Your Son did for me at the cross. Iím thankful for grace. I offer You a heart that desires to be like Jesusómerciful and gracious.
We deserve punishment and get forgiveness; we deserve Godís wrath and get Godís love. óPhilip Yancey
